Glenwood Springs, Colo. (PRWEB) November 20, 2012
Ski and snowboarding season in Colorado is imminent; in Glenwood Springs that means it’s time to kick off Ski 7, a Colorado vacation package that combines seven of the state’s most renowned ski resorts with value-priced lodging in Glenwood Springs. Skiers and snowboarders have access to top ski resort destinations all season long and, with the money saved by bunking in Glenwood Springs, they can splurge on après ski activities like soaking in the Glenwood Hot Springs Pool, exploring the subterranean world at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park or dining at award-winning restaurants including the Glenwood Canyon Brewpub or The Pullman.
Thanks to its location midway between Vail and Aspen, Glenwood Springs is the ideal home base for skiing and snowboarding all winter long, and Ski 7 packages make the most of this geographic good fortune. Lodging choices in Glenwood Springs are both plentiful and affordable. With over 1,700 rooms and rates starting as low as $100 per night, the savings add up quickly. For comparison, a typical room in either Aspen or Vail during ski season runs a whopping $300-$400 a night!
“The beauty of Ski 7 is that you get everything you want, outstanding skiing at seven Colorado resorts, room rates that are reasonably priced and, best of all, you have money left to enjoy Glenwood’s iconic attractions and premier dining,” said Lisa Langer, vice president of tourism marketing for the Glenwood Springs Chamber Resort Association.
With seven mountains to choose from, visitors can create a custom Colorado ski or snowboarding vacation. Consider warming up those ski legs at Glenwood’s hometown hill, Sunlight Mountain Resort, a vintage-inspired ski area that is ideally suited to families. Next head south to Aspen where four mountains offer diverse options: Aspen Mountain for a posh downhill experience, Highlands for extraordinary steeps, Snowmass for wide-open spaces and Buttermilk for kid-friendly skiing and riding. Vail and Beaver Creek, both less than an hour from Glenwood Springs, offer more iconic Colorado skiing with charming Euro-inspired base communities.
By staying in Glenwood Springs where lodging is 75 percent less expensive than in neighboring communities, visitors are able to live large even after the slopes close. Post-slope activities include:
